SELECTION & STORAGE
The Leafy Greens Council explains the dos and don’ts of their namesake veggies, starting with the best way to store greens. Wrap them in damp paper towels and refrigerate in a perforated plastic bag. Buy greens in good condition and keep the towels moist. In terms of quantity, 1 pound of raw kale equals about 2½ cups cooked. And 1 pound of mustard greens cooks down to 1½ cups. Finally, avoid aluminum cookware, which affects the greens’ look and taste.
